Bloomsburg, Columbia County-Shannon Phillips, a junior public relations major from Bloomsburg, is Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s new student representative to the Council of Trustees. She replaces Marcus Fuller, a senior early childhood education major from Harrisburg, who is student teaching during the spring semester.

A Husky Ambassador since 2012, Phillips is public relations chair for the BU Dance Ensemble and previously taught dance at a local studio. She completed internships with PPL Susquehanna, Dave Ashby Photography and Geisinger-Bloomsburg Hospital and works as a hostess at Turkey Hill Brew Pub and an assistant manager at BU’s PSECU eCenter.

Phillips said she applied for the Trustees position because she wants “to meet others who are invested in Bloomsburg University the way I am.”

Appointed to the Trustees by Gov. Tom Corbett, Phillips will attend her first meeting in March.
